State Oversight of Health Insurer-Provider Contracts

There are important health insurance market and delivery system issues that are developing across the commonwealth. In response, the state legislature is considering changes in state oversight of insurer and hospital contracts.

HAP believes there is a compelling public policy interest for the state to ensure that there is a competitive insurance market to enable broad access to coverage.

However, HAP opposes legislation that would result in a regulatory framework that either:

  • Prevents health care providers from being able to effectively structure contractual relationships with health plans
  • Unduly interferes with insurance market competition
